  I just held my draft for a 10 team PPR keeper league.  You keep two players from the previous year, get 1 PPR, with the exception of TE's who ger 2 PPR.  We start 1 QB, 2 RB, 2 WR, 1 TE/WR, K, DEF.  The season is 13 weeks with the playoffs being weeks 14 and 15, the division winners and then the next 2 teams with the best records make the playoffs.

I picked last in a snake draft since I won last year.  I kept MJD and Matt Forte, I let go of alot of good players who all got picked before they got back to me.  4 QB's were kept, 11 RB's and 5 WR's.  My draft went like this:

Keepers: MJD, Matt Forte
1ST ROUND: Calvin Johnson- on my team last year, A.Johnson, Jennings, Wayne, and Witten all went before him.  I lucked out, mostly beacause the guy with the 4TH pick messed up.  He kept Colson and Boldin, let go of LT but picked him back up.  He should have kept LT and 1 WR and then could have picked A.Johnson.

2ND ROUND: Roddy White- next best option IMO.  Boldin, Colston were kept otherwise they should have been avail.  Top avail., were S.Smith, Bowe, Welker.

3RD ROUND: Chad Ocho Cinco- think he's in line for a bounce back year.

4TH ROUND: Donovon McNabb- he was the last QB avail before the list went kaput besides Schwab who was selected after me in same round.

5TH ROUND: Lendale White- he fell and was the best RB avail., scores alot of TD's and is a nice bye week replacement or could fill in nicely if there are any injuries.

6TH ROUND: Brandon Marshall- he fell and was by far the best WR out there.  Hit or miss pick, but was willing to take chance.  Hopefully he gets traded.

7TH ROUND: Tim Hightower- Wells was gone already, they split the ball pretty evenly but Wells is injury prone so he has a lot of upside to become an every down starter in a great offense.

8TH ROUND: Owen Daniels-  fell to me and there was only one other guy who didnt have a TE and I know was going to take him so I made the move.  Daniels is in line for a good year in a great offense.

9TH ROUND: Eagles DEF- last person to pick a DEF, was between them and Jets, they were the best 2 avail.

10TH ROUND: Ahmed Bradshaw- has great upside as Ward has departed and Jacobs is injury prone.

11TH ROUND: Lesean McCoy- has great upside because Westbrook is injury prone and might be his last year as the starter.

12TH ROUND: Eli Manning- took him beacause plays KC in week 4, McNabb's bye week.  Hope McNabb dosen't get hurt or I will be in trouble at QB.

13TH ROUND: Jeremy Shocky- see a bounce back year since he is healthy and plays in a great passing offense.  With in injury year he had last year he still had 50 catches.

14TH ROUND: Robbie Gould- needed one of these.
All in all I think I have a solid team, I had to pick certain players and posions early then expected because of the way everyone else was drafting.  By the end of the 2ND round there were 7 QB's gone so when McNabb came back to me I had to pick him otherwise I would of had to draft like 3 QB's and played matchups.  I picked up Marshall because he slipped that far and was the best player left at his position, plus a lot of value in that pick and he was going to get snatched up in that round by someone.  TE's went real early, a guy took Witten with the 9TH pick in the first round which is why I was able to get Calvin.  There were 6 TE's taken before my 3RD pick and 8 before I took Daniels so I think I got good value for him.  Lets just say I was the last one to pick a DEF. so I had to take them here before people started taking 2 DEF. 

Let me know what you think of my team by giving it a grade: A-F with +/-.  I will give out 5 stars for everyone who leaves comment.

Thanks and I will grade your team also if you want to post it.
